ICYMI: Representative Ron Kind, Gwen Moore, and Mark Pocan Call Out Trump’s Tax-Scam and Chaotic Trade War

(MADISON, WI) — Yesterday, Representatives Ron Kind, Gwen Moore, and Mark Pocan released a joint statement slamming Trump’s tax-scam bill that has done nothing for hard-working Wisconsinites and the chaotic trade war that is further hurting Wisconsin’s farmers, manufacturers, and small businesses.

Wisconsin State Journal: “In a joint statement Monday, U.S. Reps. Gwen Moore, of Milwaukee; Mark Pocan, of Madison; and Ron Kind, of La Crosse; blasted the Republican tax cut bill Congress passed and the president signed for only benefiting the wealthy, and for his trade war they say is damaging working families. ‘Ever since President Trump passed his tax-scam bill, we’ve been bracing for an economic downturn,’ they wrote. ‘Three years in, it’s clear that the policies of this President are not working for Wisconsin workers, farmers, business, and families.’”

AP: “Wisconsin is expected to be one of the most fiercely contested states in next year’s election because Trump barely carried it in 2016 and polls show voters remain deeply divided. Moore, Kind and Pocan say Trump’s trade war with China is increasing the likelihood of a recession. They say Wisconsin farmers, manufacturers and small businesses are all struggling.”
